Batch #77 [A] Caramel, and a light candied citrus. [A] A hazy golden color, with a white, retentive head. [F] Some astringent booze on end. Flavor is cherries, dark fruit, citrus, caramel. Pilsner malt is noticeable. [P] A touch syrupy and over carbonated. Fizzy mouth. Not something to put down quickly. [O] Reminds me of a DFH beer. Like a toned down 120 min. Not sure if I would necessarily categorize this as a barleywine. I made the mistake of ignoring the bottle, and pouring the sediment in, causing an uproar of foam in the process. This is one for the cellar to temper, and cool down. Way to hot for me to enjoy fresh. Campfire beer.

jerohen (2335) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2017
On draft @BBF17, Bodegraven. Tasted side by side with Fred from the Wood and Cherry Fred. Amber colored, small head. Malty nose, hops, perhaps some spices. Alcoholic flavor, malts, raisins, hops. Good as a base beer to experiment with, but imho not really impressive stand-alone.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Tap at Borefts 2017 day 2. Clear dark golden with thin white ring head. Big sweet and dry barley malts, leathery bitter, caramels. Big sweet and strong bitter. Full body and low carbonation. Buttery, boozy powerhouse.

Palate 3 /5: sticky and resin primarily Taste 8 /10: lots of stone fruit esters. Finishes very boozy and sticky on the palate Overall 17 /20: Fairly typical for a Belgian strong but solid at that.

355ml bottle from Elizabeth Station. Batch 96. Pours a clear golden (lots of sediment on the bottom of thr bottle, though) with a huge white head. Aroma is malty, honey, flowery. Similar taste with huge malt character and hoppy bitterness. Interesting.
